That's nice from an overall financial point of view, but for most
people, cash flow is the primary concern.  Are banks going to loan
people $10-20K for a new battery pack on a 10 year old car?  Not only
will they not, but people won't want to do it anyway: they're going to
buy a new car instead, just like they do when a motor or transmission
gives out, or shows signs that it might.  I bought a Leaf (well, leased
it) instead of refitting my Solectria's worn out batteries.  The Leaf is
a much nicer car with vastly improved technology.  That is going to be
the trend for the next several years too, which is why I leased it.
